Great Visit to Terra-cotta Warriors

It is amazing to learn about the history and see the Terra-cotta warriors in person. My kids thought it was really cool also.

We have just been to see the Terracotta Warriors and we were spell bound. It's worth the trek getting there. The first and largest hanger has about 400 sculptures inside and is most impressive. You look down on the army, get there early in the morning, the light makes for fantastic Colours and photos. Take a camera with a zoom.... More

You will feel nothing les than awe when you go here. Do it on your own, its very simple. Take the bus to the train station, get into a bus that ends at the warriors location. Just 7 RMB. Pay your entrance tickets and enjoy one of archaeology's crowning finds.

Amazing the strategy the older empires used to rule their lands. It's a good eye opener so see their previous beliefs and values. Also a good lesson in the ancient technology and how these process were lost over time and then we rediscovered it only in the last 100 years and claim it as being new... A must if your... More

If you can read/watch/research about the Qin Terracotta Warriors before you go - do! It makes the experience even more amazing. This is an incredible find, and an even more incredible archaeological feat. There is so much left to uncover, it will be nice to go back when they unearth the tomb. We saved our feet and took the electric... More

Museum was terrific. Prepare to be thoroughly disappointed with the movie. Skip the bus to the Mausoleum. You are not missing a single thing. It is just a Chinese speaking tour of the mound ending with government sponsored Jade shops. IMPORTANT - If you DO go to the Mausoleum, make sure you get back on the SAME bus you went... More
